According to a Comprehensive Research Report by Market Research Future (MRFR), “Compostable Paper Trays Market Information By Source, Material Type, by End User, by Region – Forecast till 2030”, the market is estimated to grow at a 6.5% by 2030.

Market Scope:

The top quality compostable food tray is manufactured from renewable plant fiber and uses no plastic in its construction. Bamboo, sugarcane pulp remnants (bagasse), corn starch, wheat bran, palm leaves, coconut coir, Kraft paper, and other plant fibers are used to make the compostable food trays. They don’t introduce any toxic chemicals into the food and are completely biodegradable and compostable. These compostable food trays have a sleek design and superior strength, durability, break resistance, and crack resistance. These biodegradable trays can be used to store both warm and cold foods because they can be heated in the microwave or frozen without damaging the packing.

Moreover, they confidently accommodate food items that are light, heavy, liquid, or solid. It is widely agreed that food trays are the most user-friendly kind of food packaging due to their airtight locking system, which prevents any leaks or spills. The market for eco-friendly biodegradable food trays is expected to skyrocket in the future years since they are produced from plant fiber or wood pulp, both of which decompose naturally and pose no threat to the environment.

Market Drivers

Although there are several benefits to using plastic trays, consumers are seeking more eco-friendly packaging options. These days, edible trays are all the rage because they eliminate waste and may be used right away. Edible tray options made from sugarcane, palm leaf, corn starch, bagasse, and others have boosted demand for compostable paper trays. It is expected that these edible trays will prove to be an effective packaging alternative to traditional trays because they suit all of the consumer’s packaging needs.

Market Restraints

Packaging solutions raise a number of environmental issues, such as the need for compostable or biodegradable materials and the difficulty of recycling them. In 2017, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) issued various comments clarifying and expanding its position on biodegradable additives in packaging. Degradable chemicals have not been subjected to exhaustive testing, and it is unclear what kind of threat they pose to the environment and human health, as was highlighted by the study.
